At the risk of stating the obvious, as has been reported in this thread, the main use of OmniMic (or other such measurement system) to augment Audyssey results (not really specific to Pro) takes two basic forms:
1. Prior to running Audyssey.
Measurements can be done to guide placement of the sub(s) in the room-this can make a remarkable difference in final outcome. Similar procedures irt speaker placement and acoustic room treatments can also be done but IIRC have not been reported on here.
As linked in post #2, see here
2. After running Audyssey.
a. Measurements to basically test/confirm the results of Audyssey.
b. As bfreedma just posted, measurements can be used to guide tweaking distances of speakers/subs in the processor to achieve smoother freq response.
I believe there is a link to a tweak procedure in the Audyssey FAQ.
